This is not unexpected, but it is good to have it confirmed.
The American Express Membership Rewards hotel transfers page (click here) has been updated to show that transfers to the new combined Marriott / Starwood programme will go through at a 2:3 ratio.
It erroneously shows as ‘3 Starpoints’ instead of ‘3 points’ but I’m sure Amex will fix that.
This is as we expected, as the old ratio to Starwood was 2:1 with Starwood to Marriott at 1:3.
In theory transfers should restart from today after a suspension whilst the Starwood / Marriott IT merger was completed.
